We are home from our family reunion in Zion National Park. It was a long drive to get there, but it was worth every hot, sticky and uncomfortable minute in the van. There is nothing like spending time with your extended family … nothing. I suppose I’m just getting old, but I thrill at seeing my younger siblings raise families and do an outstanding job too. It’s so delightful to watch cousins playing and then even better to stay up after they’ve gone to bed, so we can hang out and talk.
I’m preparing for a week at Girls’ Camp — this adventure will begin for me and a group of 4th year campers and leaders next Monday (at 6:00 am) for an overnight canoe trip. We’ll then arrive and stay with the larger group Tuesday through Friday. There will be no phone or Internet, so I’m scrambling to wrap up content for Finding Photo Freedom. I’ve got LOTS to do to prepare myself and my family too — and then one week after I get home, I’m flying back to Utah to film 12 episodes for My Craft Channel — yikes!
What’s that line about the lazy days of summer again?
I am pleased to report that our industry is well represented …
On the cover is the ever adorable Heather Bailey (she has had a paper line in the past) and Tim Holtz (who is featured in a new column about creative men.)
Inside, there are articles about them and a dozen or more creative people, including Becky Higgins, Melody Ross, Jinger Adams and Me!
The crazy thing is I haven’t had a chance to read this issue yet — I’m dying to go sit on my porch and read the whole thing page by page, but I’m using it as a reward for getting my work done! Just thumbing through makes me uber-excited to go and learn from all of these talented people.
more details on that soon!
